Berklee College of Music professor Steve Wilkes is traversing the length and width of the White Mountains, recording everything he hears: bird calls, waterfalls, chatting hikers, and even the roar of cars driving through the Albany Covered Bridge. His hope? To create 60-some recordings of the life of the forest, then upload them for public listening. To listen, go here.
